1. Welcome to Atlantic County's Park at Weymouth Furnace Marker
Inscription. Welcome to Atlantic County’s Park at Weymouth Furnace which was developed around the remains of an early 1800’s iron furnace. These remains are an important link to Atlantic County’s rich history. This furnace turned out iron pipe and utilitarian pieces but was called to duty to make weaponry for the War o 1812, giving it national historical significance. A paper mill was operated at this site from the late 1860’s until 1887. Signage to help visitors interpret the history of his site is under development. It is important that we protect images of the past such as the Weymouth Furnace, so that they remain to be studied and enjoyed by future Atlantic County residents and visitors. No one is authorized to remove any piece or particle from this site. Atlantic County Code Section 97-15: No person shall damage, tamper with or remove any property, equipment or facilities owned, used by or under the jurisdiction of the County. Penalty: $500 fine and/or 90 days imprisonment.
